Topic: Isolated VMs in Hyperbola

What is the best way to create an isolated environment in hyperbola?

Say I want to develop a program which depends on dbus and many other things which hyperbola does not support (not as bad as proprietary blobs).

How to create an isolated environment which has it's own files, which is unable to access any files under hyperbola (maybe it should be chrooted), and use an OS like guix or parabola (if needed). It should not be 1-time and I should be able to start it later with the edited files in last session as they were.

Today, the forces which make richer and poor poorer have their roots in computer security. Never has it been more important to work towards abolishing the power of the powerful.

Let's use hyperbola or other libre OSes and strive towards stateless hardware (Rutkowska 2015). Let's use GNU/Linux phones and shun Android. Let's share our secrets (true word for 'data') with only the people we trust.

I suppose qemu might work, not sure...

Can you give more details? Perhaps, a beginner's guide.

Not sure,

The way i use qemu is similiar to this:

sudo kvm -m (amount of memory for VM, i.e. 2048) -cdrom (name of image, i.e., gnuinos.iso) -boot d name-of.img

To start the image after install do:

sudo kvm -m (amount of memory for VM, i.e. 2048)  name-of.img

Obviously don't use sudo first for each of those commands though...

That's about all I know with qemu.

What you say might be more complex then that though...

Hopefully someone has more knowledge?
